Julia

Age: 24

Working With Children Check: Yes

First Aid Certificate: No

Hi I’m Julia! I am a surfer, PADI Dive Master, ocean lifeguard and Environmental Studies graduate from California. I moved to Lord Howe Island in February 2020 for a dive training internship and have decided to stay.

The ocean is my life’s passion and most of my childcare experience involves working in this environment. I was a lead Junior Lifeguards (“Nippers”) instructor and an ocean lifeguard in California.

In my free time, I’m surfing, diving, studying sharks, exploring the island, running around the mountains with my partner and growing my passion for conservation as much as I can.

I’m happy to look after kids of all ages, especially those with the energy and enthusiasm to get outside and experience the island. I look forward to serving your babysitting needs while you enjoy your holiday on the island!
